Help wanted and much needed for the city of Florence AL. All council seats need to be freshened up,… meaning ALL current council members need to be ousted, forced out, VOTED out.
Lets take a look at what the current council has done for the citizens of Florence. While having 2 million dollars set aside for improvements to Veterans Park,… the council gave away the money,…. Gave it away. This was not RSA money, it was tax money. OUR tax money that was squandered. Now this same council applauds themselves for having $100,000 to spend on upgrades for the SAME Veterans Park. All because they could not come up with a plan for use for the money. Does it look as if they KNOW what they’re doing? To me it doesn't.
Oh and lets not forget the added 1% sales tax recently passed. First let me say that I am glad police and first responders will get a raise. That isn't an issue,… the issue is that the FLORENCE CITY COUNCIL could have and should have given these departments a raise sooner,… and without a 1% sales tax increase. It could have been done. We lost valuable personnel to other cities because they were underpaid. Does it look as if OUR city council knows what they are doing? To me it does not.
Jobs,… oh we are running a muck with food server jobs,… Florence celebrates each new eating establishment. Where are the good paying jobs?,… jobs to keep our young people here. I really can’t blame this council on that problem,… we’ve been drifting towards a retirement community for years. But we need jobs badly in the Shoals to keep those of us who do work, wait for it,… in the Shoals. On a side note,.. hospice and home health care is thriving. Why? Old people,…retirees,…
The elections are coming next year. It isn’t too early to think what you can do for Florence. If you have thought about being on the city council, there is not a better time to do so. Florence needs you. Your city is calling,… answer that call. Email me at email@example.com and let me know you’re thinking about it.
